15th Wedding Anniversary

The Basics

The 15th wedding anniversary is traditionally celebrated with gifts of crystal or glass. Crystal represents the clarity and sparkle of the relationship, while glass symbolizes fragility and the need for care and protection. Couples often celebrate by exchanging gifts or taking a trip together. Some traditional ideas include renewing wedding vows or hosting a dinner party with close friends and family. The focus is on celebrating the love, commitment, and growth in the first fifteen years of marriage.

Traditional Gift: Crystal

Crystal is a traditional fifteenth wedding anniversary gift.

Decorative crystal glassware is a beautiful gift, which is probably what is meant here. However, one could also buy actual crystals instead.

Modern Gift: Watches

A modern 15th wedding anniversary present is a watch.

Watches seem to be going out of fashion somewhat as people use their mobile phones to tell the time, but there’s still nothing like a well-crafted timepiece.

Other Information

In her 1922 book "Etiquette", Emily Post suggests that, in America at least, it is "not very good form to ask any but intimate friends and family to an anniversary party—especially as those bidden are supposed to send presents."

That said - whereas presents from anyone other than the spouse "need of value; in fact the paper, wooden and tin wedding presents are seldom anything but jokes." - "crystal is the earliest that is likely to be taken seriously by the gift-bearers."
